Personal experience and some research on the subject have confirmed for me that writing is good for your health, emotionally and physically. Not only is it beneficial during traumatic times, it is also a ritual we should incorporate into our daily lives to help us cope with the pressures and stresses we all encounter. In looking back on my story I was fortunate to have had two special notebooks, one that helped me process my grief and separate from my past; while the other one, written by my husband, helped me to assess and connect to my future.
